    It stands for short cut, basically shorter sticks with the same burn rate but more of it can be compacted into a case because of its shorter size.

    BTW my reamer was a custom made by PT&G for 243 Lapua Case Dimensions. And it was smithed by retired gunsmith Mike Bryant. I still have the reamer.

    I recommend this load. I see you have IMR4831. Maybe you can give it a try.

    Good luck.

    I use 44gns. RL22 behind Sierra 100gn, SP and rem 91/2 primers. Works very well on red deer.

    Well folks went ranging yesterday, sighted in at 100yds dead on.

    Loaded 50 rds of 105gr amax lapua brass ( no other case will fit of course) 43.1gr Rl19 seated at 2.790 performed beyond belief. At 320yd at paper and gong with head wind roughly 10-15 mph, got 4 hole in one and 13 rounds clover leafing. Fu$$I* load is outter of this world..

    Loaded 105gr amax H4831 40.5gr same seating. At 320yd gong with 1inch black circle all were in there. Of course I cleaned barrel every 3 shots.

    I went fron having velocity of 2878 with 105gr 43.1 gr rl 19 to whopping 3254 fps.. out of my 30inch barrel with vais muzzle brake.. only issue is trigger is a bit heavy at 4lbs clean..

    Wish jewell made one, I know I shouldn't complain with groups like that. I had 2 good friends shooting with me. We had a blast with gong
